Dear Friends of the Eldredge Public Library,

Our Library is one of the Cape's busiest and best libraries of its size in Massachusetts.  Residents and summer visitors alike use computers, access our wireless connections, scan and print documents, borrow or download books and check out audio books, CD's, kits and games.  But we offer much more, including many activities for children, teens and adults throughout the year.

In turn, we need your help to keep Chatham's library one of the Cape's best.  Please consider supporting the Eldredge Public Library by buying raffle tickets to our summer raffle "Chatham By the Sea."  Prizes are on display at the library and are depicted in this brochure in beautiful pen and ink drawings by artist Kassie Foss.  You can also view them on our website,  Raffle tickets will be for sale outside the library on weekends and at any time at the front desk of the library.

Our library receives only 60% of its annual operating budget from the Town of Chatham.  The rest must be raised through generous donations from our residents and visitors.  For only $10.00 a ticket, 3 for $25.00,  you can support children and youth programs, technology, the Learning Series, and many other extraordinary services our library offers to us all.

Thank you, we appreciate your support.

Winners will be drawn at the "Books in Bloom" at the Library on August 22.  All are welcome!
